Jamshedpur: The BJP, which has not fielded any candidate for the Mandu by-poll, on Monday said it will decide whether to support the JMM or JD(U) both allies in the bypoll after withdrawal of nomination.

"We have decided not to contest the by-poll and will take a decision about extending support to our allies contesting the by-poll after withdrawal of nomination," Dineshanand Goswami, Jharkhand unit President of BJP told a press
conference here.

Goswami said a meeting of the leadership will be convened soon after the withdrawal of nomination and it will take a decision in this regard after consulting our party high command.

The by-poll was necessitated following the death of JMM sitting MLA, Teklal Mahto last month.

JMM and JD(U), both allies in the Arjun Munda-led coalition government in the state, have fielded its candidates for the seat.
